What are the benefits of working with HFL to improve primary language teaching in your school?

Our partner schools and settings enjoy a range of benefits when they take advantage of the primary language support our Languages team can provide.

Many find they benefit from extra capacity to both support curriculum review and/or adaptation and to also support non-specialist or Early Career Teachers.

There’s an additional benefit in the continuing tailored professional development available for teaching staff.
